Malaysia's National QR is finally here for hassle-free and convenient digital payments! Thanks to DuitNow, this QR code payment accepts transactions from participating banks and eWallet providers in the country.

This highly benefits merchants, retailers, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) as they no longer have to display countless QR codes on their counters, which can be confusing for consumers. All they need is one DuitNow QR code! :)

DuitNow QR is a game changer for both business owners AND paying customers

What makes DuitNow QR so convenient is it can be integrated seamlessly and securely into existing eWallet providers and banks. Business owners can rest assured that all QR payments made via DuitNow QR will be instantaneous, in other words, received immediately*!

*Subject to terms and conditions of your acquirer.

If you're a business owner, here's how DuitNow QR can greatly benefit you:

1. Use just one QR code for all payments, regardless of bank or eWallet

Whether you're running a barber business or you're a home baker, you can display one QR code to receive payment from customers. Merchants no longer have to display countless QR codes on their counters.

2. Gain access to more customers

Before this, customers may choose other shops because they prefer a particular type of payment. But since DuitNow QR accepts payment from most banks and eWallets, you open up your business to more opportunities, because customers won't have to worry about how they will pay you.

3. Save the hassle by having a single consolidated payment report

It can be a hassle if you have different reports coming from various apps provided by banks or eWallet providers. Tallying the numbers at the end of day can be tedious and stressful work due to the multiple reports and settlement cycles. Thankfully, with DuitNow QR, you'll view all your payments in one consolidated report, saving you time as a business owner.

4. Conduct contactless payments online

For merchants conducting their business from home, you can share your DuitNow QR code via messaging apps, or post it on your social media or e-commerce platform to make it easier for accepting payments.
